Forehead Lift in Mexico

The Ultimate Guide to Forehead Lift in Mexico

Last fact-checked: 4 October 2020

Aging skin tends to appear around the forehead and eyes first, and a forehead lift can help without resorting to a more drastic full facelift procedure. 

Give yourself a younger look and banish those tell-tale lines, wrinkles and sagging brows by booking in with one of our quality-checked surgeons in Mexico.

Why Consider a Forehead Lift in Mexico?

For North Americans and Canadians especially, Mexico is convenient, affordable and offers a variety of destinations across the country for top-quality surgery, and the chance to enjoy a break or holiday.

Enjoy the hustle and bustle of Mexico City, soak up the sun in Cancun or discover Mexico’s ancient history and Colonial towns – and all for less than the price of the surgery alone back home. These are also a number of drive-to destinations close to the border with top-notch facilities, including places like Tijuana and Mexicali. 

The majority of people who come to Mexico for forehead lifts (or any other surgery) come to save money, and there is no doubt that you will save.

Medical and dental tourism is growing here – and new centers of excellence are springing up across the country to cater to this growing demand, staffed with well-qualified surgeons and medical staff and equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. The knack for medical tourists is not only about choosing the one with the lowest prices but also finding the one they feel most comfortable with.

How Can Medical Departures Help?

Medical Departures helps to make the process easier for patients as we have already background checked our doctors. We look for legal/criminal proceedings, confirm qualifications and professional memberships and do on-site visits, as well as obtain real patient testimonials – which gives an honest appraisal of a particular doctor or clinic by the people who know best.

You are free to use this information to make up your own mind and come to your own well-informed decision.

What Are the Different Types of Forehead Lift Available in Mexico?

Most types of brow lift surgery can be performed in a number of ways, using different techniques, or a combination of techniques, depending on what your surgeon decides is right for you.

Forehead lifts can be performed using a continuous incision along the hairline (traditional technique), from temple to temple, or via an endoscope, which is a long thin tube with a camera attached.

The endoscope is inserted through a small cut in the scalp and the camera allows the surgeon to see what is going on under the skin without having to open a big wound. Other small cuts in the scalp allow instruments to be inserted and the appropriate nips and tucks made with minimal scarring.

How Long Does a Forehead Lift Procedure Take?

This depends on what technique is used, but a forehead procedure typically takes between one and three hours.

What Is the Recovery Time After a Forehead Lift?

  • You will be sore after the procedure but will be given painkillers to help ease the discomfort.
  • Numbness and a feeling of tightness are normal, but this should begin to dissipate after a few days.
  • Bathing, showering and hair-washing can normally be done the day after surgery – but be careful of getting the wounds wet, and make sure to use the cool setting on the hairdryer, should you use one.
  • You can begin light activities after a few days and you should be back to your everyday activities in three weeks.
  • Many people return to work after a week, but physical exercise, anything strenuous and heavy lifting should not be engaged in for at least a month.

What Is the Cost of a Forehead Lift in Mexico Compared to the United States and Canada?

In Mexico, a forehead lift is, on average, around $2,000, compared to around $5,000 in the United States.
